    Hello Martin, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm not sure that I understand what you were wanting to do exactly. Could you provide more details?

    Are you wanting to completely disable the Store?

    When you say "turn on", do you mean that the Store opens at every startup?

    If so, then make sure that you have the desktop tile dragged to the first top left position on your Start screen instead of the Store (if there).

    I have desktop tile on top left position on start creen, but store always opens in the background on startup...
    Automatic updates in Store are disabled. Where to turn it off? There is no Store under Startup.

    I'm not 100% sure of what this background process does, but it does seem to be essential. I have it as well on all my systems by default.
